All the Tools – One Toolbox
Up until now, the pro audio market has only seen single function units such as format and sample rate converters, patchbays and audio interfaces offering digital signal handling. Never before have these essential functions been incorporated in a single platform linking your entire fleet of digital devices to your DAW.
Make your favorite hardware the heart of your DAW
With Digital Konnekt and the new Integrator plug-in, you can now utilize your trusted and favorite digital hardware tools within your DAW system!
Featuring TC's plug-in streaming technology, the Integrator plug-in (VST and AU) facilitates seamless integration of all external units with your recording setup; once connected, adding the unique sound of your Reverb4000 (or any other digital external hardware unit) is just a mouse click away. And with the built-in latency roundtrip measuring feature and your DAWs latency compensation, your projects will not suffer from latency introduced by the external hardware.
Digital Konnekt x32: Patchbay, Format Converter, Audio Interface and hardware integrator!
Tired of re-wiring over and over again? With Konnekt Digital x32 you connect your digital hardware once, make the wiring that fits your setup requirements and you’re good to go. All subsequent routing takes place from the front panel of Digital Konnekt x32.
Digital Konnekt x32 provides efficient format conversion between units using ADAT, SPDIF, TOS and AES/EBU digital formats. Any input format can be converted into either of the listed formats and aligned to any sample rate ranging from 44.1 to 192 kHz.
Two FireWire connections enable you to use Konnekt Digital x32 as an audio interface connected to a computer. It streams 16 channels of audio to and from the computer, and is compatible with other TC Electronic audio interfaces.
Konnekt Digital x32’s Integrator plug-in makes integration of external hardware into your DAW environment seamless. It offers a “plug-in” audio routing representation of your external hardware, e.g. Reverb4000, Finalizer, System6000, etc. Since Integrator operates like a normal VST/AU plug-in it can be inserted on any track, as a send effect or on the master output of your host application.
Unique digital matrix style UI for direct selection of signals
Since all functions are assigned individual front panel buttons without underlying sub menus, Digital Konnekt x32 gives an instant overview of routing and offers intuitive and direct monitoring and operation.
8 ch of sample rate conversion on board for optimal digital adaption
In a digital setup without a sample rate converter it is imperative that all units run by the same sample rate. Increasingly more project studios prefer to run their host application at 96 kHz, a sample rate which lots of digital hardware doesn’t support. Also, using devices that does not receive a digital signal – keyboards, synthesizers, cd/dvd players etc., is a challenge without sample rate converters. With Digital Konnekt x32 this is no problem. Its sample rate converters allow you to align units running at different sample rates ranging from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz.
Analog outs (phone and balanced line) for monitoring
Analog stereo outs allow you to connect a set of monitor speakers. This is perfect when you use it as an audio interface, and together with the phones out, it easily lets you monitor each of the inputs individually.
Scene recall enabling instant recall of full setups
The Scene recall function allows you to store up to 4 snapshots of all active routings and settings.
JET™ technology ensures rock solid digital signal handling
The TC developed DICE II chip, running Digital Konnekt x32’s super stable clock, is based on JET™, Jitter Elimination Technology. With the integrated JET™ technology the DICE II chip is able to align all digital signals from external digital sources with extreme perfection. The great benefit of this is that all supported digital formats will be automatically aligned and thereby you get maximum digital quality trough and trough.
- 8x AES/SPDIF IO/6x TOS IN, 4x TOS OUT
- 8x ADAT (up to 96 kHz SMUX) IO
- 16 channels FireWire IO
- Word Clock IO
- Analog stereo out + headphone out
